Do you always feel like you’re in a rush? Do you feel there isn’t ever enough time to accomplish everything you need to do in a day? Or maybe you’re always worrying about whether you did the right thing.
Stress and anxiety are common feelings that nearly every American will experience at some point in their lifetime. For the most part, stress and anxiety are positive feelings because they’re often connected to caring about something or someone’s goals or ambitions.
Unfortunately, stress and anxiety can quickly have a very negative impact on a person’s life if not handled correctly.
